THE MUSIC OF CREAM
50TH ANNIVERSARY WORLD TOUR
Tuesday, November 5th
THE PEDIGREE OF CREAM IN A NEW MULTI-MEDIA CONCERT EXPERIENCE!
Ginger Baker. Jack Bruce. Eric Clapton. Cream was a chemical explosion like no other, the blueprint for every supergroup to follow and the heavy blues precursor to Hendrix, Zeppelin and so much more. Fifty years since their earth-shaking debut album, the bloodlines of that hallowed trilogy come together to pay tribute to Cream's legendary four-album reign over the psychedelic frontier of the late 1960s. Kofi Baker (son of Ginger) and Malcolm Bruce (son of Jack) unite with Will Johns (Eric's nephew by Marriage and son of Zeppelin/ Stones/ Hendrix engineer Andy) to unleash the lightning that electrified a generation. Feel the fire and the freedom of "Spoonful", "Strange Brew", "Sunshine of Your Love", "White Room", "Crossroads" and "Badge" — performed by master musicians whose lives have been steeped in the Cream spirit and legacy.

THE BUCKINGHAMS & THE BOX TOPS
Thursday, November 7th
Not one, but TWO incredible bands on one special evening! These two bands will each take the stage and perform a string of hits from their respective catalogs of rock and roll hits. The Buckinghams are one of the most beloved and respected Chicago bands ever to explode onto the national scene and their live concerts pack power into 60s pop rock. Bringing back great memories with their chart-topping 60s hits, they also include 70s favorites in their powerful sets, electrifying audiences with dynamic vocals and solid harmonies. Full-time since 1982, original Buckinghams Carl Giammarese and Nick Fortuna and their band have continued to deliver fast-paced, solid shows that bring crowds to their feet. The Box Tops, also still headed up by founding members Bill Cunningham and Gary Talley, were inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame in 2018 joining other Memphis music legends like Elvis, Johnny Cash, Otis Redding, BB King, and others. As they play, you can almost feel that gentle southern breeze & smell the smoky barbecue as if you are walking down Beale Street to the beat of their sweet, sensuous, slightly gritty sounds. With a long list of top-40 hits, the Box Tops are still going strong today performing to packed houses. The Buckinghams and The Box Tops will be a very special and unforgettable evening of music.
